Floorspace adapted on the spot for NZRU carpet fit-out

All Black Coverage – custom floor for NZRU offices from Floorspace


Our most celebrated sporting team is famous for adapting quickly to unexpected test situations, traits also vital in the world of commercial business.

When the New Zealand Rugby Union relocated to the top two floors of the former State Services building on Molesworth St – now New Zealand Rugby House – Floorspace had already ordered an eco-friendly, patterned-loop carpet with a high recycled material content for all levels.

"The Currents carpet, part of the Flux series by international brand Tandus, was originally selected in a grey and blue wave-like pattern. However, when the NZRU came into the building mid-project, it requested a change in the carpet colour to more accurately reflect the All Black branding. This was to be the same product but in a black and grey.

"We are the sole distributors of Tandus products here and we quickly contacted the manufacturing centre in China to request a change. Several swatches of the custom carpet were airfreighted to us and as soon the NZRU fit-out designer was happy, we ordered the carpet. It arrived by sea and was fully installed a short six weeks later."
